Made in the USA, I don’t know about you, but those four little words bring chills down my back. In a global economy like we live in today, where it’s all about outsourcing for the best deal possible, it’s pretty rare to look on the tag of your t-shirt or the warranty card of your new stereo equipment and see the term “Made in the USA.” Unfortunately, as we’re all looking to increase profit margins while competing with products being imported from overseas, we are literally cutting jobs right from our neighbors and wondering why the economy is doing so poorly. And this all goes without saying of the quality (or lack thereof) that is typical from imported products. The Made in the USA theme has always been an important one in the minds of most Americans, but becoming even more prevalent GIVEN OUR CURRENT ECONOMIC STATE. We are finding ourselves on one side or the other of a proverbial fence: one side that represents a global economy highlighting equality, the other side representing a more pride-enriched, self-regarding approach.
We are taking the side of the pride-enriched, self-regarding approach. Whether it’s during election season or not, putting faith in your fellow Americans to build the best products on the planet using the best possible materials is the mentality we ALL need to have. We recently posed a question on our Facebook to determine the propensity of our followers to spend a little more for made in America products. The outcome was overwhelming…..100% toward American made products. And stemming from this mentality, we at Power Products Unlimited, Inc. are starting a campaign to showcase those products and manufacturers that are…..MADE IN THE USA! You will begin to see deliberately posted MADE IN THE USA stamps over products or manufacturers that are proudly made in America on our website, Facebook, and pertinent blog posts. So, keep an eye out for these stamps, and if you care, purchase items proudly MADE IN AMERICA!
